Is this a Hoary Redpoll? It is very different from the rest of the Common Redpolls currently at the feeder. And yet, it seems to have more streaking than normal for a Hoary! What say you? Thanks, Andrea

Looks more like a pale Common Redpoll to me. Bill looks a little larger than what I would expect on a Hoary.
